    Instructions

    CONVENTIONAL METHOD

    • Add all ingredients, including activated yeast to a large bowl. Stir until well combined.

    • Cook muffin in microwave for 90 seconds. Toast and serve with choice of toppings.

    THERMOMIX® METHOD

    • Mill flaxseed or flax meal 7 seconds/speed 10.
    • Place all ingredients into mixer bowl including activated yeast. Mix 15 sec/speed 4.
    • Scrape sides of mixer bowl and mix together well with spatula. Follow instructions from Step 3 above.

    Notes

    1. Muffins can also be baked in oven at 170℃ for 10 minutes.
    2. Whey protein isolate makes the muffin light and more bread-like. I do not recommend leaving it out.
    3. Almond meal can be substituted for a mix of sunflower/pepita meal for a nut free version.
    4. Yeast is optional. It can be left out of the recipe.
